In an interview on “Dune”, Dave Bautista raved about his role in the latest sci-fi film and was not very enthusiastic about his Drax character from “Guardians of the Galaxy”.
After several postponements due to the global pandemic, “Dune” finally reached us in the cinemas this year and was able to inspire the audience. In addition to an impressive box office result, the film received very good reviews. “Dune 2” has also been confirmed in the meantime. So there will be a reunion with Paul Atreides (Timothée Chalamet) and his mother Lady Jessica (Rebecca Ferguson), but the villains Baron Wladimir Harkonnen (Stellan Skarsgård) and Glossu Rabban (Dave Bautista) are also back .
“Dune” is now available on Amazon Prime Video. You can watch the film here
Bautista, who many probably also know from his Drax role on “Guardians of the Galaxy”, recently raved about his role in “Dune” in an interview with ABC News (via Cinemablend). The actor explains that he could really prove himself as an actor and found no positive words for his Marvel role:
“The thing about this character was that he just gave me the opportunity to do a different kind of performance. And that’s what I want to work with [Regisseur Denis Villeneuve] really love. I have the opportunity to show myself in a different light as a performer. I’m not just the guy in Guardians who goes around shirtless and says stupid shit. [Die Rolle] really just gives me the opportunity to play these really, really deep characters. So that’s a blessing. “
We’ll see Dave Bautista again in “Dune 2”, but what else can we expect in the promising sequel? In our video you can find out all the important information about the second part:
Dave Bautista was unhappy with the way Marvel treated Drax
In fact, some “Dune” fans would certainly agree that Dave Bautista was allowed to show himself from a completely different side as an actor and not constantly utter funny slogans for a change. Still, “Guardians of the Galaxy” was the first really big blockbuster film with which the actor could reach a large audience. Perhaps the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) is partly responsible for the fact that we were allowed to see the actor in other blockbuster works.[display-posts orderby="rand"]
The actor had already criticized his Drax role in the past. According to the star, Marvel raised the character, for whom he actually saw great potential, as a comic relief, which Bautista did not appeal to. Ultimately, the actor has now finally bid farewell to his Marvel role. After “Guardians of the Galaxy 3”, the former wrestler will turn his back on the MCU. At least we’ll see him again as Glossu Rabban in “Dune 2”, which the fans can look forward to. If everything goes according to plan, the second part awaits us in October 2023.
